Synergies is a full conversion and balance mod for Torchlight 2 that won EDITORS CHOICE BEST OVERHAUL: 2013 in the MOTY AWARDS!
Constant updates, huge additions to the vanilla game, both on quality and cuantity. (new maps, mobs, playable classes...) its a total conversion that simply takes the game to a whole new level and concept.
Its also well-balanced, not an "overpowering" mod.
The work put on it is impressive, it totally changes the game to something new BUT at same time it keeps the essence of the vanilla game.
Its simply the biggest, "polish-est" and funniest mod for synergies atm.
Probably the only full conversion made till now.
And, as said, a full conversion that still is able to keep the essence of the vanilla game.
This mod is incredible. I've lost interest in Torchlight 2 due to performance issues and such, but out of curiosity decided to try it again with Synergies.
After couple of hours of playing I'm amazed. There is so much stuff added and/or improved, for example inventory is ten times bigger. For some reason low FPS didn't bother me anymore. Two thumbs way up!
I can finally play as a Necromancer! I can't express how happy I am about that fact alone. While usually I don't play any sort of melee specific class, I actually found the Ninja to be quite enjoyable. Though I have yet to get anywhere too far with it just yet - since I usually play Necromancer, only time will tell if I continue to enjoy the Ninja class as much as the Necromancer.
SALUT.ce mod is great but compared to the original there are large negative point:
* Too much loot legendary and rare objects from the beginning of the game so we spend 75%
a look into the inventory. You go crazy
* Classes are too powerful even if he beaucop more monsters and fighting against bosses are less epic because it does not oppose much resistance even in very difficult way (the game loses much of its fun)
the eqilibrage is a completely redo to be in continuity with torchlight 2
because in a hack & slash key word is balance
otherwise apart from that this is a good job
At the time of this writing, "total conversion" is a bit reaching. However, with a great feel to the game and new classes that are fun to play, as well as including some things that really should've been in there from the get-go, Synergies makes TL2 feel more... complete. I will say that even on a high powered rig, the sheer amount of enemies can really bog things down. That said, give it a try, and you'll find your playtime go way up.
im basing this rating on the potential here. the new classes are fun and things seem to be coming together in a way that will be balanced well. this could still go either way however if the ingenuity of the people making it degrades or the balance doesn't fall into line.
Something that is so well polished in the basic phases of production, that not only offers a continued spirit of the vanilla experience, but adds to it in more ways than 1 definitely deserves a ten of ten. This mod, and the constant updates, the continual support, the stream of information from the developer, and the drive to make it an incredible experience for everyone who plays, is amazing. I applaud you sir. May your beard be epic in all generations.
